The <http://www.sochistdisc.org/> Society for the History of Discoveries
will hold its Annual Meeting 2015 in London, United Kingdom. The scope of
the Society's activities encompasses the discovery, exploration, and mapping
of the earth's land and sea surface from earliest times to the present - the
explorers and the explored. Fields of specialization thus include the
history of European expansion, cartography, navigation, colonial settlement,
biography, and bibliography.
In addition to the paper sessions to be held at the Senate House of the
University of London and the Conference Center of the British Library the
Annual Meeting will be complemented by excursions to the
<http://www.rgs.org/HomePage.htm> Royal Geographical Society, the Map Room
of the <http://www.bl.uk/> British Library, and the
<http://www.rmg.co.uk/> National Maritime Museum in Greenwich.
An updated program and schedule of events and scheduled excursions,
abstracts of the presentations to be made, online-registration, and
suggested accommodation close-by the paper session locations may be found at
NOTE THAT EARLY BIRD PRICING IS IN EFFECT THROUGH APRIL 30.
ON MAY 1, PRICING WILL INCREASE. If you plan to attend, please register
soon to take advantage of this offer.
The time and location of the Annual Meeting in London enables interested
overseas delegates to attend conveniently back-to-back the
<http://www.ichc2015.be/> 26th International Conference on the History of
Cartography in nearby Antwerp, Belgium, on July 12-17, 2015.
As space is limited, especially on the various additional excursions and
site visits, we encourage interested persons to register as soon as
possible. Be sure to carefully read the information at
http://www.sochistdisc.org/registration_notes.htm prior to commencing
With warmest regards,
